    Ark Hunters Unite Once Again for Defiance 2050

    Dropping on PC, PS4 and Xbox One
    Defiance 2050 Review The Mommy Gamers

    On Friday, July 6, Defiance 2050 dropped for Founders and Tuesday, July 10, it launched for all players on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For those wondering, Defiance 2050 is the same concept, but with major work done to it and gloriously upgraded to meet all needs with the consoles and PC. Defiance 2050 is a free-to-play third-person shooter in an open world setting.

    Trion Worlds first launched Defiance back in 2013 and SyFy had a show based off the same name that aired for three seasons. The show and game were meant to work along one another, switching storylines over and making it much more immersive. Sadly, SyFy canceled the show in 2015, leaving the shooter in the dust by itself.

    The story starts us off 20 years after the Arkfall event that left millions of Votans dead, and Earth in an odd tera-formation. This tera-formation has left Earth completely unrecognizable to many. In Defiance 2050 players are dropped in what we call San Francisco.

    In this open world setting where solo and with friends are totally acceptable, we move to Arkfall locations to take down bosses, run PvP matches, and find the Ark Core. The Ark Core is a vital piece that we protect from various groups. If it gets into the wrong hands, there is no knowing what could come from Earth. Much of the main story is finding the Ark and protecting those in San Francisco.

    Players choose between several classes after the customization of their Ark Hunter. The options provided are Assassin, Guardian, Combat Medic and Assault. Players can also purchase Demolitionist in one of the packs. Along with the classes, there are weapon customizations and enhancements to give your weapon an extra punch. Some of these upgrades can decrease the amount of recoil, and increase fire rate.

    When we start off, the main storyline is carried through with squares that have exclamation marks in them; these show you where to go throughout the story. There are also smaller side missions that you can mark. The red Arkfall on the map is open world bosses that allow you a serious chance at upgraded loot such as weapons, grenades, and shields. Along with the mini-bosses, there are custom PvP matches that one can queue for.

    Graphically, this is more of an HD update. And it brings me joy to see Trion Worlds trying to bring new life into a game that so many enjoyed. I enjoy moving around and remembering not only the story within the game but the show as well. While there is no longer a show, it’s not hard to get lost in the Arkfall chasing, Hellbug killing missions and making the Bay Area a safer place.

    I will say that while all this has been amazing to binge play Defiance 2050, Trion Worlds has been working diligently to fix the bugs and get servers back online as soon as possible. While there still are Raiders that stick on one spot and hang out till they are dead or fall back 30 feet after a clip has been pushed into their body, I admire the hard work and dedication to get Defiance 2050 up and running smoothly.

    Brie’s overall score? 7/10

    What Could Be Coming to E3?

    Confirmed and Rumored
    E3 Predictions The Mommy Gamers

    There will be an immense lineup, announcements, and products releasing at E3 is a great chance to see what’s coming. We’ve decided to take a sneak peek at currently what is rumored and confirmed, just so we can tantalize those thumbs for what is to come in the gaming world. Also, mark your calendars for E3 on June 12-14, 2018 in Los Angeles. E3 and GameStop typically partner and televise conferences so you can watch, and not tell your boss.

    E3 The Mommy Gamers Defiance 2050

    Confirmed:

    I loved Defiance, which aired as a SyFy TV show and as a video game on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. Well, it was fun while it lasted and people got bored quickly since the game was supposed to tie in with the show and the show only lasted three seasons. Thanks, SyFy. Trion Worlds is bringing Defiance 2050, a reimagined shooter for today’s audience and that should mean that it is coming on PS4 and Xbox One. Maybe even VR? Who knows!

    Confirmed:

    The Last of Us is beautiful and just mentioning it doesn’t do the game justice. When I first bought the PlayStation 4, I was so new to Sony, I didn’t know which games to purchase. The Last of Us was recommended and it’s amazing; from the story line to the graphics and mechanics. It truly is a treasure and there is a trailer for The Last of Us 2. My prediction is this will be on the floor to try out, and honestly, I want it now!

    Confirmed:

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is another game that is more than likely going to be on the floor to gamers to test. While I personally lost faith in the franchise after the game went Halo on us all and allowed for wall running and Exo-Suits to drive us all mad, I loved the Black Ops installments. I am hoping to see more of this game in the coming weeks because it is launching this October.

    Rumored:

    Kingdom Hearts 3, the Final Fantasy Disney crossover that made a huge splash on PlayStation 2, it will be, of course, the third game in the series. While we don’t know an exact release, a hunch is that there could be an announcement at E3 for some time this year. Noting pass release dates, my guess will be holiday 2018.

    Rumored:

    Borderlands 3 is rumored, I am ALL over this. I loved Borderlands and Borderlands 2, and have high hopes for the third, or fourth installment, depending on how you look at it. The last installment came out in 2012, so this is so welcome and makes gamers excited at the thought of this. Sadly, this could be a 2019 release according to the fiscal year. Although the fiscal year for 2K goes from April to March, so we could technically hope for a holiday launch. Lastly, there was a thread running around the interwebs that we could see Borderlands 3 teased June 10, just a couple days before E3.

    Confirmed:

    A console favorite for my kids has always been Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare. Sounds like we will be seeing a third installment of the game and rumor is that it will also be on the floor. To those who are into the books, or their kids are, the Garden Warfare Volume 2 will tie in directly with the game. This is a game that makes me feel like a kid in the candy store.

    Rumored:

    Animal Crossing has been a favorite and while the website has been getting a complete overhaul, we could potentially be getting some news about a game for the Switch. This is totally presumptuous of us to say, but I think that would totally be cool if they took this update and gave us something along with it.

    Other games that we are totally jazzed about include: Bioshock 4, Halo 6, Battlefield, we could be seeing some Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds in there, and Super Smash Bros.

    In case you want to check out some of the press conferences this year, E3 and Gamestop team up to make these conferences easy to stream if you are unable to travel to Los Angeles. Press conferences are as follows: EA on June 9 at 11 am. Microsoft June 10 at 1 pm. Bethesda on the 10th at 6:30, Ubisoft June 11 at 1 pm. Please note there are a plethora of press conferences during this event and it is still extremely early to have a full schedule. The Mommy Gamers wants to know what you are most excited about.
